gob b returns to BIG as head coach

The legendary German in-game leader has returned from VALORANT to become the head coach of the German team.

BIG have announced that Fatih "⁠gob b⁠" Dayik has joined the CS:GO team as the new head coach following his assistance during the RMR tournament, replacing Niclas "⁠enkay J⁠" Krumhorn in the position.

The 34-year old is one of the founding members of BIG, filling different roles in the organization, first as a player in their CS:GO team, then coaching their BIG Academy project and recently being a part of their VALORANT squad. He now returns to the game where he has been known as the "godfather of German Counter-Strike," as he reached the grand finals of ESL One Cologne 2018 and multiple Major playoffs with a German-majority lineup.

gob b returns to Counter-Strike as new head coach of BIG

"It's time to follow my heart and return to the game that made me the person I am today," said Fatih "⁠gob b⁠" Dayik about his return from VALORANT. "I’m not the guy who only tried things: if I commit I am doing it at 100%. I am looking forward to working with the team and to have my first appearance behind them at the PGL Antwerp Major!"

Roman "⁠Roman R.⁠" Reinhardt, Head of CS:GO at BIG, stated that the new coach has already had an immense impact on the team, saying "everyone could feel the energy and aura he brought with him at the RMR, and he played a big role in our performance in Bucharest."

It is currently unknown what will happen to Niclas "⁠enkay J⁠" Krumhorn's position in the team, as the organization are yet to comment on his future.

BIG are set to compete in the IEM Dallas 2022 Europe Closed Qualifier tomorrow, where they will face Apeks in the first round in what will be Fatih "⁠gob b⁠" Dayik's debut in his new role.

BIG are now:

Germany Johannes "⁠tabseN⁠" Wodarz
Germany Tizian "⁠tiziaN⁠" Feldbusch
Germany Florian "⁠syrsoN⁠" Rische
Germany Josef "⁠faveN⁠" Baumann
Germany Karim "⁠Krimbo⁠" Moussa

Germany Fatih "⁠gob b⁠" Dayik (Head coach)

But the same goes for many who left csgo to go to Val. Especially the na washed talent
2022-05-01 23:06
Or the scene is just oversaturated nowadays in Val or they are most passionate about CS. Realistically the most successful Valorant players so far were not the biggest names in CS. Was mostly NA pros who switched anyway and only a few players have had success.

BIG absolutely crushed it during the RMR, and during that tournament gob was with them and, as far as i know, assisted Enkay. I guess they maybe had this thought in the back of their heads for a little longer, and now that the team blew away the competition when he finally assisted, I guess the connection between gob being there and success has been made (however, other issues that we do not know about might have been the case, who knows..)

You don't need to win to be a legend, revolutionising the way the game is played is enough sometimes :) If you go look at thorin's series where he interviews IGLs about how they approach the game (youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpaD0ybYH0S1m..) many of them site gob b and BIG as one of the best innovator for strats. He really perfected the old overly strategic style of BIG

Well they haven't said they lost him or moved him into a new position yet. Maybe they're working out a contract for analyst or assistant coach, which would be huge.
2022-05-01 20:55

no matter how you look at it it'll still be a downgrade... even if he is payed the same as he was when a coach, it lowers his value as an asset, doesnt give him as much experience coaching which is what he needs.

It is very interesting to see retired players coming back as coach or other roles on teams. Since CS is not so old we are starting to see this happen more frequently just now. As much as the game changed a lot since Gob B and others retired, their expertise will add a lot to the game. Much as like football players becoming coaches, there will always have a chance that being a good player does not always mean you will be a good coach. Lets see

enkay j criticised the team a lot even in public with swearing and stuff. probably wasnt better in private. u need to be honest but big is a team that u gotta build up confidence wise no clue what he brought to the table but gob b is the type of person they need

Let's fucking go, I'm a BIG fan from now, I'm so happy to see this guy back, literally one of the biggest legends of this game, <3 gob. Also I think it's a really good upgrade for BIG, this team can do some damage, I'm looking forward to seeing them at the Major.

I bet he was the factor that made them not over-peek in afterplants and always go perfectly syncronized into retakes vs Faze. The highest quality game in regards to discipline since 1.6
